Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------JIM THOMPSON: SLEEP WITH THE DEVIL: A BIOGRAPHY OF AMERICA'S GREATEST NOIR WRITER by Michael J. McCauley. This biography of crime novelist Thompson (1906-1977) provokes deep interest. Thompson, a native Oklahoman, is recalled as a courtly, gentle giant by members of his family in interviews with McCauley, co-editor of a collection of Thompson's short fiction. Though racked with guilt about his alcoholism, the writer, we're shown, was nothing like the disturbed characters of his fiction, such as the sadist of The Killer Inside Me . His works received little attention here, but they were popular in France where they were made into classic films. A master of noir fiction, Thompson, a WPA writer during the Depression, was sensitive to the monster that can hide behind a civilized exterior. Much of his work is being rediscovered,'' including The Grifters, on which a recent film is based. PLUS----there are L-O-A-D-S of photos!!
